Use Cases

There are two ways of mounting devices in FRINX Machine. You can either run a workflow to mount a device directly or you can add devices to your Kibana inventory and mount devices from there. From your Kibana inventory, you can mount a single device, but you can also mount every device tn the inventory at once.

To start mounting devices open up your browser and go to [host_ip]:3000. This is the GUI (UniConfig UI) for managing all of your devices.

You will be presented with a screen, where you can register with an email address.

In the following section, you’ll learn how to mount all devices from the inventory. This inventory is automatically set up for you when you start FRINX Machine. After that we’ll learn how to create a loopback address on the devices that we previously stored in the inventory and how to read the journals of these devices.

After that, in the LACP workflow, you’ll learn how you can create a link aggregation between two nodes. Next, you’ll learn how to collect LLDP information from you mounted devices an how to store that information in the inventory.

Then we’ll take a look at how to obtain platform inventory data from the devices that you have in the network and how to store them in inventory. Next, you’ll learn how to save commands to your inventory and execute them on the devices that are in your network.

Lastly, we’ll take a look at how you can add devices to your inventory manually. This might be useful if you wanted to play around with FRINX Machine a bit a try mounting your own networking devices.
